    Thanks ChickAdvisor and Scotch Essentials for giving me the chance to try Scotch Essentials Permanent Hem Bonding Strips. When I saw this on the web site for the first time I was thrilled there was finally a product out there for me. I have short legs and I never seem to be able to find pants that fit me around the waste and in the length. They're always to long and I refuse to pay to have jeans hemmed, so my jeans always fray away. My sister in-law has the same probably as I do, so I had her bring her pants over and we both tried the bonding strips together. We found it very easy to use and so far it has held up very well on her dress pants and our jeans. Even when our jeans and pants have gone through the wash a few times it held on and hasn't shifted. This is also something I thing a wedding party should have on hand just in case someone's hem lets go. I'd definitely recommend Scotch Essentials Permanent Hem bonding strips to everyone!

    I was so happy to receive my FREE sample of #ScotchEssentials Permanent Hem Bonding Strips from @ScotchProducts and @ChickAdvisor in exchange for my honest opinion. I have so many work dress pant that the hem has come undone. I never have the time or skills to properly mend them. I must say this product so so super easy to use and I have about 3 more pairs of pants that will be instantly mended 1st thing tomorrow morning. Today I used this product for the first time. It is so simple. Turn your pants inside out so you can easily access the hemline. Open the package and remove one strip. For me the length of the strip was perfect. (you can trim it if less is needed). Carefully, press down the strip sticking the sticky side down on the fabric. Make sure that it is close to the fold line so that no extra adhesive will be exposed. Then carefully and slowly remove the brown paper backing. MAKE SURE NOT TO GET THE GLUE ON YOUR FINGERS. (To avoid it sticking to your fingers you can lightly dampen your fingertips with water) I suggest you do this because I did not and the glue strip is super sticky. Once the backing is removed you simply fold up the hem and stick it into place. Super Easy!! Because you are only applying a thin layer of adhesive there is no added weight to your hem and it is totally invisible. No marks, no ugly home stitching marks-nothing. Just press it down firmly and you are ready to go. It is the fastest and easiest way to correct a fallen hem I have ever experienced. This product is an excellent value. You get 30 strips for just $7.99. You could potentially use this product 30 times. Amazing! I will definitely be sharing the news of this fantastic product. I have not had the chance to launder my pants yet, but it states that as long as I use cold water and warm iron it should stay in place. Time will tell. Thanks Chick Advisor for introducing me to yet another fantastic product.

    Easy and convenient. No sewing required. It stays put and doesn't shift around or peel off after use. Enjoying it so far!

    Scotch Essentials Permanent Hem bonding strips was sent to me by 3M and chickadvisor free to test. I loved the idea for women like me who are sewing challenged.This product is great for on the fly fixes and to save the hems of dress pants. It's a great product to shorten pants that you don't want to take to the tailor. I can see so many things this is going to be great for. Very much worth the money.

    I received this free as a product tester and haven't washed my pants too many times since applying the hem tape, seems to be holding up but I'm hoping it'll still hold up after multiple washes, so far I'm impressed!

    I was fortunate enough to try these from Chick Advisor and it's a definite must have! These strips are easy to apply and so far have great staying power! Saves a lot of money over taking your clothes to the tailor. Whether you are out for a quick fix or a permanent solution the scotch strips are where you need to go for all your clothing solutions.

    I have to admit hate sewing or ironing! so the Scotch Essentials Permanent Hem Bonding Strips are a dream come true for me! No more frustrations trying to thread my needle, then spend all that time trying to keep a straight line and my stitches end up looking like Frankenstein. The Scotch Essentials Permanent Hem Bonding Strips were so quick and easy to use, you could do it on the go! They are really sticky so watch out! but so awesome I use the bonding strips on so much more than just hems.

    I received this product for testing purposes from Chick Advisor.

    This product is simple and easy to use with the provided instructions. It is a great easy at home fix for hemming. The price is good considering how much you would pay for professional alterations at a tailor. The strip is very sticky and you have to be careful when applying it! This product helps make at home hemming much faster and easier!

    I would recommend this product to anyone who has some hemming to do! Give it a go!

    I haven't had a chance to try this product yet, but I can't wait. Was given this as a sample to try out for reviewing, didn't receive it until Friday and was due by Monday. I can't find any items that need mending at this moment. But it is a great price for 30 strips for 7.99. I can't wait to try it out, since I am horrible at hemming things on my own.
